Molly Prentiss NAILS the art scene in New York-1980. Artists like Jean-Michel Basquiat, Julian Schnabel, Keith Haring are just starting to make it big in the exploding art/money world of downtown New York. Her main characters; an Argentinian painter fleeing the turmoil of the Dirty War and a brilliant arts writer gifted with synesthesia are unforgettable. I couldn't put this down and finished it in two big gulps.
